My Name Is W

It’s probably no surprise, but a man in my position has to deal with a lot of stress. I have to make decisions that affect the lives of literally millions of people. As much as I try to shake off some of the less enjoyable aspects of the job, some days are tougher than others.

So my wife Laura suggested I meet up with a friend of hers. His name is Chase. Sounds like a soap opera name. In any case, Laura told me Chase was a good guy to talk to. I won't tell you what Chase does for a living, but suffice it to say, he’s a good listener. Chase told me I should have some kind of outlet for my thoughts. Get them out in the open so that I can deal with a lot of the issues I face on a daily basis.

He suggested a weblog. I had no idea what he was talking about. I’ve heard about these weblogs, though I’ve never taken time to read any. But Chase, being a real good guy and a kind of wiz when it comes to these technical things, showed me.

Actually, this ain’t so bad so far. So I’m going to see how getting my thoughts out in the open’ll help me deal with the day-to-day. My good friend Chase may be on to something.
